Portable Air Conditioners are a Versatile and Mobile Cooling Solution
Portable air conditioners are an alternative cooling solution that is able to be easily moved when needed elsewhere. Residential portable air conditioners range from 7,000 to 14,000 BTUs and are meant to cool areas up to 600 sq. ft. Commercial portable air conditioners are offered in both water cooled and air cooled models and range from 13,000 to 120,000 BTUs. These powerful units are meant to cool special equipment in large warehouses or factories.
Since portable air conditioners are essential air movers, moving out hot air and replacing it with cooled air, they have to an outlet for the ventilation of warm air and moisture. Many residential portable air conditioners are vented through a nearby window using an included window vent kit, but accessories are available for ceiling and sliding door ventilation. Many commercial portable air conditioners are vented through the ceiling. Depending on the situation, other ventilation applications can be used. Other portable air conditioner accessories include window locks, filters, and remote controls.
When shopping for a portable air conditioner, you’ll want to focus on the cooling power and square footage the unit can cover. These two units of measurement typically coincide; larger BTUs are associated with larger coverage.
There are many benefits to using a portable air conditioner rather than a traditional cooling system. Other than the mobility factor, you have the ability to spot cool areas of habitation or concern, rather than using an entire central system. In commercial settings, portable air conditioners can be used to cool special equipment on weekends and after hours, giving business owners the freedom to use central systems less.

General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
